Some of these old flicks do seem to benefit from brevity. Take "Dead Men Walk" for example. Entertaining as it is, it would seem dull if it ran for ninety minutes or more. Much better at the current running time. Same holds true for those B-western "quickies", great the way they are.

I also get a kick out of those 40s PRC and Monogram horror films, and have seen them on TV ever since I can remember. Short and sweet!

Sometimes PRC has been nicknamed "Poverty Row Company" but all the ones I've seen have had pretty good pruduction values. Same goes for Monogram and others.

PRC has also been called "Pretty Rotten Crap," but I like their films, too. Moreso than Monogram, in fact.
